Hey Amy. Tell us a bit about you.

Hi, I’m Amy. I’m 23 years old and live in Sydney, Australia. Some of my passions and pastimes include travelling to new and exciting places, hanging out with my Golden Retriever Zoe, playing netball, drinking lemon and honey tea, reading a good book or magazine, doing Pilates, and designing.

Aroma Candles - Packaging Design

What or who inspired you to be a designer?

I originally studied marketing when I finished high school and wanted an extra skill to go with it. Little did I know I would be finding a new passion of mine.

Ideas Hub - Book Cover Design

What are you up to in the design world at the moment?

I am currently applying for new jobs that are within the design world. I’m hoping to find a role where I can use the skills I have leant from my marketing and design courses.

Mousse & Co - Corporate Identity Design

Mousse & Co - Corporate Identity Design

What is your favourite part of the design process?

I love seeing a design idea/sketch come to life when I start creating it on the computer.

Your Next Step - Layout Design

You were really into all sorts of design disciplines at TGDS, branding, campaigning and even packaging.
Have you a fav?

I love layout design, particularly creating magazine layouts. I also really like branding. It was a very exciting process to create the design brief for a client and then come up with a logo and brand identity to represent that company.

Tell us anything you would like to about your featured works.

I really like the work I created for my module 10 assessment, when we had to create a campaign design project. I created a company called ‘Your Next Step’ and the concept behind my campaign was to inspire people to travel and journal about their thoughts and feelings while experiencing different places and cultures.
I created a magazine, journal covers and postcards.
This assessment featured two of my passions, layout design and travel.

For my corporate identity project in module 10 I created a company called Mousse & Co., a premium chocolate company. I wanted to create a logo that was simple but unique to represent the brand.

The Aroma Candles logo and packaging design was created in module 12. I again wanted to create a simple and minimal logo for the company as well as very clean and crisp packaging design for the products.

What did you love most about studying design?

I loved learning about different elements of graphic design, particularly colour, branding and layout design.
I also like that each module throughout the course was really different and interesting. I loved developing my skills during the course and being able to see my work evolve and get better.

What’s your dream design job? Don’t hold back!

I love creating magazine layouts so a dream job would be to work as an art director for a lifestyle/travel or fashion magazine.
